Rated 4 out of 5 by Mirren Unique in beauty, design and meaning
...and I would give this 4.5 stars, if permitted. Why not 5? Two reasons. First, unfortunately, without the weight of an attached enhancer or charm, the birds flip. They don't hang straight down and you can't see what they are! The sparrows are lovely and significant and it would be nice to be able to wear the necklace without an enhancer on occasion. Next, one reviewer wishes the necklace were longer. I'm okay with the length, but I see that point. It might be nice if the necklace opened in the back with an extender so we could get a bit moe length *and* make it easier to put on. (It's kinda tricky lining up your enhancer or charm and setting the circle clasp. At least it is for me :-) These 'observations' (not complaints, by any means!) won't stop me from considering getting the black when it's back in stock! The necklace is just that good.

It's beautiful, I love it but it's going back. At 18" it's too short. I don't have a long, slender neck so while an 18" necklace fits, it doesn't fit gracefully. This strand would tuck into the collar of a man-tailored shirt but my usual 'uniform' is a black tee with a cardi or jacket. This necklace is too short for draping over a tee.
Please please make it in 20" or 22" long - I'd buy two!

I don't write many reviews but I had to express to others the true beauty of this necklace. I purchased this in the white pearls along with the longer tassel necklace and I can't stop playing with them both. The possibilities are endless and I can make use of other pieces that I haven't worn for quite some time. The ring in the center is smaller to keep the scale and the proportion the right size, however, larger rings from other necklaces work just fine making is suitable for all enhancers, keys and pendants from her entire collection. Finally, this necklace puts the quality back in QVC!

I JUST RECEIVED THIS NECKLACE IN THE BLACK PEARLS AFTER BEING ON WAITLIST FOR ABOUT A MONTH. THE BLACK PEARLS, THOUGH ON THE SMALLER SIDE, ARE LOVELY AND HAVE PURPLE AND BLUE HUES THROUGHOUT EACH PEARL. I CHOSE THE BLACK IN THIS DESIGN, AS I ALREADY OWN BOTH A SHORT AND A LONG VERSION OF BARBARA'S IN WHITE PEARLS. I DO BELIEVE THAT THE BLACK PEARLS COMPLIMENT THE OXIDIZED SILVER IN THIS PARTICULAR PIECE. IT IS A DELICATE DESIGN, BUT BY NO MEANS FLIMSY OR CHILDLIKE ( AS ONE REVIEWER STATED). I DID CHANGE OUT THE MIDDLE CIRCLE (FROM A MUCH LARGER ONE ON MY LONG WHITE STRAND) AND NOW I CAN USE ANY OF MY BIXBY ENHANCERS AND I DO HAVE ALOT TO CHOOSE FROM!!!! MY ONLY COMPLAINT WOULD BE THE SMALLNESS OF THE MAIN CONNECTOR CIRCLE IN THE ORIGINAL DESIGN DOES NOT ALLOW FOR THE USE OF ALL BARBARA'S ENHANCERS. THAT BEING SAID, I FEEL IT IS A TRULY UNIQUE, BEAUTIFUL DESIGN THAT I WILL ENJOY FOR YEARS TO COME. THANK YOU BARBARA FOR YOUR VISION AND ARTISTRY.

I purchased this in the white pearl option and am so pleased with this birthday splurge on myself!! When I first opened it (which was beautifully packaged and had a wonderful cloth bag to store it in but I use it for traveling) I was surprised by how shiny the silver pieces were but I actually love it!! The on air presentation was very well done and I just had to have one for myself! :) I did find, like other reviewers, that the "birds" tended to fall forward and not lay flat. So I added a small silver and diamond charm I found at a local store that matched perfectly and the problem was solved. I also found a costume jewelry set of 5 different enhancers with "semi precious" stones that I purchased on sale (practically giving it away!) and they also fit perfectly. Love, love, love the design of this necklace and truly enjoy wearing it. The option to tailor it to suit your mood is especially unique. Would make a fabulous gift for a loved one or for yourself!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by spottie888 Keeps flipping
The necklace keeps flipping without enhancer. I kept is since it is such a beautiful design. I just need to always wear an enhancer. I wish round pearls were used instead of rice pearls, but I guess the price point will be very different then.

This necklace is so beautiful in it's intricate details. The birds and wings are so perfect. It is a lovely necklace but it really needs to be paired with an enhancer to make it lay properly on your neckline. I purchased a heart pendant also by Barbara Body and together the effect is breathtaking. I can't wait until Barbara is back again.

Needs more weight so the birds don't flip and needs to be longer so the birds can come off.
